Celebrating 3 months with a new design!

Celebrating 3 months with a new design!

Exactly 3 months ago, on the 21st of August 2017, I made my first ever blog post on Rachael Reads! I am still loving updating the site with all things literature, lifestyle and travel, and I’m looking forward to what’s still to come.

Right now, I’m usually managing four posts per month alongside studying and working and I think it’s a good balance! Hopefully, you guys will keep enjoying my posts and my following will grow – as always, comment below with anything you would like me to touch upon, whether it’s a particular book, place, life-event or anything in between.

You might have already noticed but, to celebrate, the blog has had a makeover! Laura and her team over at Blogger to WordPress got in touch and offered a collaboration. This design is what we came up with and I have to admit, I’m loving it so far! It was so easy to talk with Laura and tell her exactly what I was after. Almost immediately, she replied with ideas and then we shared a few emails back and forth until the design was perfected. Once I was completely happy, her team then took full control and responsibility of the transition. I personally had to make a transfer to a self-hosted site (which was a little scary) but everything seems to have went smoothly. Basically, it was fairly easy, relatively quick and, if you’re a blogger, I would definitely recommend contacting them to help you out with your site. What do you think of the new design?

In three months, I’ve gained subscribers, reached over 100 followers over on the Instagram page and had great fun at the same time! Here’s to the future.

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: http://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    P.S.
    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    Regards
    Jan Zac
